Welcome to a tale of two unlikely heroes -- delivery guys for the company with big brown trucks, which in 2045 are floating a few feet off the ground and have an E-squared symbol on the side, standing for Earth Express.The fact is, they never start out to be heroes. They just have to deliver a package to Earth's president. Hand deliver it, mind you, which is entirely out of protocol. And the package is coming from a fellow in solitary confinement. And as simple a task as that might seem, the delivery folk before them all failed for reasons that Darwood and Smitty soon discover.After all, the president hasn't gained too many political allies, as his goal is to overthrow the special interests and corruption in New York (Earth's capital, and not just because the author is American). This creates a whole maze of adventure as Darwood and Smitty are thrust into finding answers and overcoming a power greater than all of Earth's forces.With loads of name brands shamelessly promoted throughout, it's a farce, an adventure, and a political commentary bundled into one fun and gangly pile.
